Famitsu to have the scoop on 3DS dual analog add-on, new games


Andriasang has what they believe to be the inside scoop on what Famitsu has to reveal this week about the 3DS, and boy is it a doozy. It seems as if the 3DS will get it’s own version of Monster Hunter, and it will apparently be a version of the Wii game titled Monster Hunter 3G. 

According to Famitsu, the title will have the water elements found in the Wii version, and will include local wireless play. If true, this would mark the first time the series has been on a portable not named the PSP, and would help spark interest in the 3DS in the land of the rising sun.

The bigger news to come from Famitsu is the confirmation of recent rumors of a circle pad add on. The peripheral will evidently attach to the system next to the face buttons, giving the system the dual analog treatment.

I must note that none of these rumors have been confirmed, that’s why they are rumors. Until the magazine ships and page scans hit the Internet you should take this with a bit of skepticism, but it sure looks more and more likely to be true.

What do you think? Will you happily purchase an add on for your 3DS giving it dual analog support? Will you wait for a console redesign so you don’t have an unsightly bulge on your 3DS? Does a Monster Hunter title excite you even a little bit? Tell us!
